Pyongyang, July 10 (KCNA) — President Kim Il Sung glorified his great life as a prominent activist and publicly recognized leader of the world socialist movement and the non-aligned movement by making an immortal contribution to the cause of global independence and the human cause of liberation.
Abdul Wahap Rashwani, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Syria (Bagdash), said this in a statement issued on July 4 on the occasion of the 12th anniversary of demise of the President.
He in a statement noted that the President, after embarking upon the road of revolution in his early years, fathered the Juche idea and the Songun idea and commanded the anti-Japanese war, liberating Korea, and beat back the U.S. imperialists’ armed aggression, successfully defending the independence and dignity of the country.
The President turned Korea, once backward, into a powerful socialist country and made a great contribution to achieving the national unity and the cause of reunification, he said, adding that the exploits performed by the President for the Korean revolution serve as an eternal cornerstone guaranteeing the victory of socialist Korea.
